I am trying to make a simple style editor for editing theming of vectorlayers, the issue I face is that once a theme has been set for a layer, there is no easy way to find the style(s) that have made the theme.

The only way I see is to keep a separate registry of layer, theme and style, if any one can suggest a better option (basically one that will prevent duplication of style data) it would be really great.

Well coming back to this topic one solution will be to use an interface and apply it to the themes being used like so:

    interface IHaveStyleMap
        Dictionary<string, IStyle> StyleMap { get; }

Then we can implement it in the Theme concrete classes like for eg in the UniqueValuesTheme


public Dictionary<string, IStyle> StyleMap
            get { return _styleMap; }


The benefit of this is that the existing implementations will not be broken, and the interface will provide us with an easy way to support legend, theme editor etc. I may be on a wrong path here please correct me if I am wrong.
